Chicago Cultural Center Wedding – Christine & Hal

Featured, RMP Couples

It’s hard to find a word other than “stunning” to use for the Chicago Cultural Center wedding venues.  The architecture and stained glass domes take guests’ breath away.  The Cultural Center was the perfect location for Christine & Hal’s wedding day.

Individually, Christine & Hal are each highly driven and accomplished people who have that beautiful ability to not let their demanding professional lives overwhelm their sense of compassion and sincerity. They focus their full attention to whoever is in front of them – whether that be Hal’s beloved Grandmother or a catering staff member asking a question. Alone these two are incredible humans, but together, declaring their vision for their rest of their lives together? It was something to take note of.

Given how much intention they’ve put behind all their life choices, their Chicago Cultural Center wedding day was naturally no different. Together with the help of Soirée Wedding & Events, these two kept the focus on exactly the type of day they wanted—and they had just that.

Spending time alone together before their loved ones arrives allowed them to soak in all of the excitement and truly remember what their wedding day felt like. You could see this intention in the way they looked out at the room during their ceremony (when Hal wasn’t staring at Christine the way the leading man of your favorite romantic comedy stares at the woman he adores) and as they locked eyes with their loved ones during their heartfelt toast before the party got kicking.

But first we started things off with their intimate rehearsal dinner at avec before heading into the main festivities at the Chicago Cultural Center for their wedding the next day.
